It’s that wonderful time of year again… readathon time!
Okay, so I’ve been waiting around for the return of the 24 in 48 readathon since I took part last July. As some of you may know, I did not hit the 24-hour target last time around, but I’m planning well for this one and I’m hoping I’ll get at least a little closer.
So I imagine most visitors to my blog know what I’m talking about when it comes to the readathon, but for those of you who don’t…
Hi, everyone! Well, it looks like my last post was all the way back in… August, but a new year has rolled around (here, anyway), and I thought it was time to come back to this blog and work out what I wanted to do with myself in 2019.
I’ve got lots of plans for the year, for reading and writing and translating and language learning and even running, but it’s the reading I want to look at first. (Then I guess I can look at the rest of it later. Much, much later.)
Hi guys! So, reading-wise, July turned out to be a pretty good month for me. Thanks to the #24in48 Readathon, I raced through a whole bunch of books, which puts me a lot closer to being on track for my Goodreads challenge than I was at the end of June. I’m sitting at 92 books out of 180, so keeping on at twenty books per month will still get me at that target by the end of 2018.
I spent yesterday recovering from the (and I’m not being over-dramatic here) exhaustion of trying to read all weekend, but everything seems to be back to normal and I’m here to wrap-up just how well the #24in48 Readathon went for me!
Update #1: 08:45 (3h45 into the Readathon, 2h52 read)
So I’m at work now (start in 15m) and I actually did wake up at 5am to start reading! Mad, I know. Still, I’m through three books today and also started listening to an audiobook, so I’m off to a much better start than I thought I would be.Read More »
I took a train to and from Manchester, got through two books, then read two more the next day. I’m back into it! With all this in mind—-and itching to read more—I’ve decided to officially jump into the 24 in 48 Readathon.
Hi everyone! So I didn’t write a TBR post for May or for June…and I didn’t read a lot, either (though I did get a couple of books done)–coincidence? Maybe not. I’m now through 70 of the 180 books I wanted to read this year, so I do need to pick it up a little to hit that goal, but I don’t think that will be a problem! 🙂
